I own both playbook and ipad, hands down the playbook rips the ipad a new one. I've had my pb for a year and use it every day. I might pick up the ipad once or twice a week to watch netflix. Honestly I don't know why I don't sell my ipad because eventhough the pb doesn't do netflix I can find any video content at other sites. It's an awesome device

Your experience seems very strange.

We have three of them ( one for my wife and one for my daughter) and bought the first one when it came out. I travel the world with my PB and have had absolutely no issues .... period. This is one of the most under-rated products ever, thanks to the unwarranted bashing it is also the cheapest. I think once enough people starting really using the device they will realize that the Playbook was not given a fair review. My thinks you protests too much my man.
Rayhan, 28 Nov 2012There is no built in Gps in this Device .Yes there is !
Just ordered one of these, the 64gb one.
Really excited about it but will have to wait a lot till I get my hands on one.
I pair my playbook with my blackberry tourch i got my musics but could not accept my video is there i way i can access my videos via playbook
I still wouldint get it because it has no 3G support as opposed to other tablets, and it has low resolution
suresh, 23 Nov 2012if you have blackberry phone then buy this playbook or if you have wifi hotspot in your mobile... moreJust to let you know that I am able to tether my Blackberry Tablet to my Samsung GT-I5500 alowing 2/3G access away from my home wifi. Lots slower of course but useable. I would therefore suggest that only being able to pair with a Blackberry phone is a myth.

i have created so many word documents i dont know what to do with them and used it for presentations pretty much on a daily basis, and always without fail take it everywhere i go as its very portable and always connected to the internet either via hotspots or via my phone, i have a blackberry 9900, iphone 4s, htc sensation xl. the blackberry is the main one that i use, but i have connected it to both my htc and iphone with no problems on the internet. maybe that is the way forward for you?
